Is there room for nuance in eRep?


This is a game. Being a bleeding heart, hyper compassionate, super sensitive blob of feels accomplishes NOTHING. Nobody is going to commit the time and resources necessary to be totally fair 100% of the time, and we don't have the luxury of erring on the side of 'friendly'. Not even the admins care about being 'fair.' It's kind of an absurd request if you think about it. So what's fair?

I'm not talking about Ronald Gipper Reagan being banned multiple times for cheating and saying that's somehow okay because he doesn't have the time or resources to legitimately rally support from US Citizens. That was a lost cause and cheating was his last resort (before turning to America's enemies to help him take the White House by force), but that doesn't excuse it. It's not fair, but he's still allowed to play. He is a domestic terrorist.

Should I be using that word? Is it fair to call him a domestic terrorist?

Yes. There is no room for nuance in eRep. He also fits the definition rather perfectly.

This morning I read a claim of racism in my shout feed. A former Serbian is being denied government benefits because they are a former Serbian. He claims to now be a loyal American. Maybe he is. Maybe he isn't. But is it fair to treat ALL Serbians equally?

Yeah, basically. There is no room for nuance in eRep. Unless someone has really proven that they are loyal to America (long term) then why take the gamble?

Who is really going to take the time to go through every single foreign citizen that has recently hopped into the eUS to determine what their intentions are? Who is going to comb through the membership list of the American Freedom Alliance and figure out who is there as part of the plot to take down America and who is just dumb and not paying attention? Nobody.

We did literally everything we could to pull away the handful of newbs in the AFA who just didn't know any better. At what point is there no longer a good excuse for being allied with our enemies and working against us?

Eventually you have to make these calls. You have to say THIS is what the enemy looks like and then that is the enemy. If you start making exceptions then it all falls apart and we end up pretty much where we have been in the last couple months- we have no idea who the enemy is so we allow ourselves to be distracted by petty, stupid things.

Serbians are our enemies.

Ronald Gipper Reagan is our enemy.

Chickensguys is our enemy.

The American Freedom Alliance is our enemy.

Being one of those things or voluntarily associating with those things puts you in a bad spot with loyal Americans. Too bad, so sad.

There's not much more to discuss. Don't whine about it. Don't be upset. If you are a Serb who suddenly decided to come to America and play as a loyal American against your RL friends and neighbors, then good on ya... but don't be surprised if nobody believes you. You can either join your Serbian friends, create a new account as an American, or keep your head down and prove your loyalty by continuing to serve America and her interests. There are plenty of foreign citizens who have come here and proven their loyalty and become very valuable assets to the eUS through long-term service. You could become one of them, but it takes time and you can't expect everyone to bend over backwards for you. We are under attack... by your brethren.

There is simply no room for nuance in eRepublik. This is not RL. This is a game. Draw lines and pick a side. Once you've picked a side- stay there. We may not have room for nuance, but there is always room for integrity.

Whatever your side, be loyal to it.

UPDATE: Enemies in CONGRESS. Know who they are.

Isn't it funny how I, and any party I have ever led, even when it was 99% American YEARS ago, is always an "enemy".... so now that the country has changed, nothing is different? You will always make up BS reasons.

FYI, we have LOTS of people besides Serbs, and so what if some of our members are Serbs? They are predominantly nice, honest players who were great friends of the USA until we threw them to the Communist wolves with the rest of Eastern Europe.

V+S. Love reading Fingerguns articles.

fingerguns, whose multi are you?
No, seriously, you've been playing this crappy game for 3.5 years, and all you've got is 1447 strength and level either you are somebody's multi, or you're not playing this game that often, which doesn't make you eligible to give any sort of comment on what's going on. You speak of people being "stupid enough" to join AFA, as if being led astray by propaganda. But what about your BS propaganda? Aren't you writing this in an effort to sway people to the

Texan Cowboy Day 1,773, 11:36

other side? So that doesn't really make you any different from the rest of them.
Serbian players need to prove themselves? Why, if you don't have to? Most of the Serbian players have given 20 times more damage to eUSA than you have, and you've been playing this for 3.5 years...
So, yeah, whose multi are you?

Pfeiffer. Day 1,773, 11:39

it isn't hard to put up damage for the USA, when for weeks now we've wanted to LOSE RWs. I mean, seriously. I could put up 6-8 million a day 'for USA', when in fact hitting against our priorities.

AFA- persuades people to vote for congressmen that let in hordes of enemies
fingerguns- persuades people to not join the AFA

So apparently, attempting to persuade someone is always equal, regardless of what is actually being advocated. Brilliant logic sir, I'll now consider anyone who argues anything a complete hypocrite.

They've done "20 times more damage to eUSA" you say?

TheNorm Day 1,773, 11:50

I agree, I hear about people "fighting" for the eUS but they don't. You can flat out see their true patriot damage and its nil. I'm sure gipper has instructed his tools to make his followers look more "patriotic" by wearing banners and what not but it's all an act.

the AFA is playing sarcastiball, everything they say is bs.. YouravgAFAmember: "I llooovvee the eUS it's sooo great thats why I moved here! I'm a patriot!" sarcastic bs ...

"No, seriously, you've been playing this crappy game for 3.5 years, and all you've got is 1447 strength and level 26..."

And that is probably the most retarded thing I have ever read, Oh WAIT THIS IS:
"Most of the Serbian players have given 20 times more damage to eUSA than you have"

OH NEVER MIND "fingerguns, whose multi are you" THAT IS

Norbengo Day 1,773, 11:52

Butthurt author is butturt :😁

Can't you understand that these are just some pixels and that this hate comes from your fear of losing ePolitical power?

Calling us names and crying racism like this will only make us stronger, can't you see that we feed on your fear? :😁))

Norbengo is so entertaining. He claims to be American but his 'act', as seen above, it typical troll as the east euro scum he is. About a month ago he was whining about losing a BH to me. What a f'tard.

Cry me some more tears Norbengo. (Oh excuse me, that's your line.)
